Atria Group plc's shareholders are invited to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to
be held at the company's premises in Kuopio (Ankkuritie 2, 70460 Kuopio, Finland)
on Wednesday, 3 May 2006, starting at 2:00 pm.

The AGM will address the following:

1. The matters to be addressed at the AGM as set out in item 16 of the Articles
of Association.

2. The Board of Directors' proposal to authorise itself to decide on increasing
the share capital by one or more new issues.

The Board of Directors proposes that the authorisation to increase the share
capital be renewed as follows. The proposed authorisation would supersede the
authorisation that is valid until 3 May 2006.

The Board of Directors proposes that the AGM authorises it to decide on
increasing the company's share capital by means of one or more subscription
issues, so that the maximum number of the company's A Series shares, with a
nominal value of EUR 1.70, should not exceed a total of 4,218,545 shares, thereby
increasing the company's share capital by a maximum of EUR 7,171,526.50.

However, this authorisation only enables the Board of Directors to decide on
raising the share capital so that the share capital is raised by no more than one-
fifth of the registered share capital at the time the Board of Directors take the
decision to raise the share capital.  The Board of Directors proposes that this
authorisation includes the right to deviate from the shareholders' subscription
privilege on the condition that there is a significant economic reason from the
viewpoint of the company for the deviation, e.g. the financing, implementation or
enabling of corporate acquisitions or other arrangements or of assets that are
part of the company's business operations, co-operation arrangements,
strengthening or development of the financing or capital structure of the
company, or providing the staff with incentives.

It is also proposed that the authorisation includes the right that the Board of
Directors may decide that shares may be subscribed for in exchange for
contributions of capital or in accordance with certain terms and conditions. The
Board of Directors would be authorised to decide on the parties eligible for
subscription, the subscription price and the grounds for setting the subscription
price. The authorisation shall be valid for one year from the date of the
decision taken by the AGM.

Financial statements documentation and the proposals of the Board of Directors

The documentation connected to the financial statements and the proposals of the
Board of Directors mentioned in item 2 above, together with its appendix, will be

(address: Vaasantie 1, 60100 Seinäjoki), and at the company's Kuopio office
